plug itself.
Never pull the power cable as it can be damaged.
To disconnect the appliance completely, you must remove
the plug from the socket.
Do not attempt to repair the appliance in the event of malfunction. Switch the appliance off, remove the plug from
the socket and contact After-Sales Technical Assistance.
Do not move the appliance by pulling the power cable.
It is dangerous to modify or alter the characteristics of the
appliance in any way.

3. SOME NOTIONS ON HUMIDITY
Avoid the use of extension leads for the electrical power
supply cable.
The appliance must be installed in accordance with national rules on household appliances.
The appliance must be connected to an efficient earthing
system. Have a qualified electrician check your electrical
circuit.
This appliance is not intended for use in the reclamation of
commercial or residential property damaged by water.
Air always contains a certain quantity of water in the form of
vapour; this determines the degree of humidity in a room.
The capacity of air to contain water vapour increases as its
temperature increases. This is why in our homes, as soon as the
temperature drops, the air releases the water vapour contained
in it, turning into condensation, which appears on all cold
surfaces such as windows, walls etc.
The dehumidifier is an electric appliance that extracts humidity
from the air, avoiding the damage that it causes. Studies have
shown that the ideal conditions for our health and home are
obtained with a relative humidity level between 40 and 60%.
With very low temperatures, you are recommended to heat
the room even minimally. This will increase the dehumidifying
capacity of the appliance considerably. This is the only way, in
fact, to allow the condensation that forms on the windows and
other cold surfaces to evaporate into the air and be collected
by the dehumidifier. The air released by the dehumidifier is,
however, generally warmer than the air in the room.
Caution!
Keep the packaging material (plastic bags, polystyrene foam)
out of the reach of children.
2.1 Use in compliant with its intended use
This appliance is intended for domestic use only. Use this appliance only as described herein. These instructions do not intend
to cover every possible condition and situation that may arise.
Common sense and caution should be applied when installing,
operating and storing any appliance.

PUMP OPERATION
Danger!
Before plugging the appliance into the mains, check the
following:
• The mains power supply corresponds to the working voltage indicated on the rating plate.
• The power socket and the electrical circuit are adequate for
the required load.
• The mains socket is suitable for the plug, otherwise have
the plug replaced by a qualified electrician.
• The mains socket is connected to an efficient earthing
system.
When the appliance operates at low
temperatures, it frequently carries
out a defrosting cycle, which is indicated by the relevant symbol.
6.2 Applying the castors
If you wish to apply the castors to the appliance, proceed as
follows:
1) Make sure the appliance is unplugged and the tank is
empty.
2) Remove the rubber caps from the base of the appliance by
pulling them out hard, using pliers if necessary (see figure
1/a).
3) Apply the castors by inserting their pins into the holes (see
figure 1/b).
Indicates a possible malfunction
of the sensors or that the ambient
humidity is too low to be detected.
Indicates that the keypad lock is
active
STATIC: indicates that the "PUMP"
function is active
FLASHING: the pump is not operating correctly (see chap. “12.
If something is not working”)
N.B. :
When carrying out these operations be careful not o incline the
appliance by more than 45°; in any case, once the castors have
been assembled, wait at least one hour before turning it on.
N.B. :
after a few minutes in stand by, the display turns off to save
energy.
6.3 Setting it up for use
Position the appliance in the room to be dehumidified. It is
essential to leave a free space of at least 50 cm in front of and
above the dehumidifier, so as not to obstruct the air intake and

outlet. For efficient ventilation it is advisable to leave a space of
at least 5-10 cm all around the appliance.
Connect the appliance to a power socket.
The appliance operates in the previously set mode.
6.4 Draining the condensate water
7.1 Dehumidifying Mode
The condensate can be drained in 3 ways:
•
a) Draining into the tank
The condensate can be drained directly into the tank. When the
tank is full, the appliance stops and the display shows the tank
alarm
: remove the tank (Fig. 2) and empty it (e.g. in
a sink or bath tub).
Put the tank back in being careful to position the handle as show
in figure 3.
•
•
MIN
b) Continuous external draining
To use the appliance for long periods of time without periodically emptying the tank, use continuous draining proceeding as
follows:
• Open the door on the side of the appliance and screw the
nozzle onto the fitting (Fig. 4).
• Insert a garden hose into the nozzle and lead the end of the
hose to a floor-level drain. Make sure the tank is inserted
correctly.
• Make sure the hose is never placed at a height above the
level of the nozzle (fig. 5). Otherwise the water will continue to drain back into the tank. Make sure there are no
kinks in the hose.
MED
MAX
AUTO
Depending on ambient conditions, the appliance automatically stabilises both the
humidity and power levels
for dehumidification.
When the room has reached the set level of humidity, it will
stop. It starts again automatically as soon as the humidity level
returns to a percentage level higher than the requested level.
N.B. :
This method can be used when the condensate drainage must
not exceed any difference in level compared to the discharge of
the water.
7.2 LAUNDRY mode
c) Continuous drain with pump
The exclusive continuous drain with pump system allows for the
drainage of condensate when exceeding level differences of up
to 4 meters in height. Proceed as follows:
• Remove the protective plug (Fig. 6) and connect the pipe
supplied (A11) (Fig. 6);
• Make sure the hose is never placed at a height above 4 meters (fig. 7). Make sure there are no kinks in the hose.
• To desconnect the hose, push the ring nut of the connector
and extract (fig. 8).
